Remember reflectors and diffusers?

Simple is good. I’ve been teaching college photography classes for 30+ years. If there’s a set of questions that have remained the same through the film and digital era it sounds something like this, “What accessory should I buy for my new camera? 300mm lens? High powered speedlight? Carbon fiber tripod?” I reply, “A really good reflector/diffuser, like MultiDisc.” Their shoulders droop and they tilt their head like a dog hearing a harmonica for the first time. Sometimes they reply, “What’s a reflector?” It’s hard for...

Home Studio Part 2

Window light and a LiteDisc reflector. In the previous blog, “Creating a Home Studio Part 1”, I described the basic elements that comprise a “studio” and went on to list some lighting scenarios. In this installment, and those to come, we’ll be covering some more detailed approaches to making your home studio work for you. As I pointed out in Part 1, WINDOW LIGHT portrait techniques supported working photographers from 1880-1925. Although that career may not be possible today, you can benefit from their approach and create wonderful images. It's not rocket science. The image...

Building a Home Studio PART 1

Every photographer dreams about having a studio, but do you really need one? Can you justify the rent? What you really need is the ability to produce professional quality photos without the added expense of a commercial lease. For less than the move-in cost of a studio, you can buy the equipment you need to take professional quality shots at home. If we adopt a more flexible idea about what a ‘studio’ is, we’ll find ourselves shooting more often and being pleased with the results. What makes a studio different than a garage? Most people agree...

The Return of Hot Lights

With the advent of affordable electronic flash in the 1970s, hot lights (incandescent/tungsten) were almost abandoned as a tool for still photography. Why are hot lights, and all constant lights for that matter, becoming so popular again? The main reason is because continuous lights provide a ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get’ result. Another reason is because modern digital cameras are able to shoot in relatively low light levels, so low wattage continuous lights are bright enough for portrait shooting. Regardless, this subject deserves some attention. All photos copyright 2011 Jeffery Jay Luhn. All rights reserved. History: From 1930 through 1970 hot lights ruled the...
